Waterfall Bottle

BY  Naoya Arakawa

$2,300 USD

With its flowing shape, rippled texture, and glistening finish, Naoya Arakawa’s Waterfall Bottle captures the ebb and flow of a cascading river in masterfully hand-blown glass.

Renowned for forging glass with the qualities of water, Naoya Arakawa draws endless inspiration from nature, especially from a stream near his workshop in Kyoto, Japan. Using traditional Japanese techniques he has been honing for more than 40 years—along with his own, bespoke formulas of sand and other natural materials—he hand-blows glass vessels meant to reflect the landscape around him, shifting and shimmering in the changing light.
